Species-specific responses to ocean acidification should account for local adaptation and adaptive plasticity

 Although this study pertains to the Humboldt Current System,  similar variability in response is likely in the California Current.   Cristian A. Vargas, Nelson A. Lagos, Marco A.

Development and application of foraminiferal carbonate system proxies to quantify ocean acidification in the California Current

Published 22 February 2017   The oceanic uptake of anthropogenic carbon has mitigated climate change, but has also resulted in a global average 0.1 decline in surface ocean pH over 20th century known as ocean acidification. The parallel reduction in carbonate ion concentration ([CO32-]) and the saturation state of seawater (Ω)
